GUJRANWALA: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif during his meeting with US President Barack Obama on Thursday will present commemorative photos of Obama's mother's stay in Pakistan during the 1980s.
Official sources said Barack Obama's mother worked for the Asian Development Bank (ADB) during the 1980s and came to Pakistan to work on a project – she stayed at a five-star hotel in Lahore and frequently travelled to Gujranwala.
She used to provide financial assistance and issue loans to the poor people residing in various areas of Gujranwala under the ADB's micro finance program.
During her time in Pakistan, Obama also visited his mother.
A government official said the interior ministry requested pictures from the relevant district administration, which got in touch with locals she was in contact with and the people she trained or worked with in the micro finance program.
